Bronze Drum Stand

This remarkable object served as a base for an upright pole-drum. The three snakes, their scales worked in low relief, coil around a tubular sleeve in which the wooden pole would have been placed. Additionally, various exotic creatures decorate the top and side of the drum stand.
